Pretty cool. I want to look into that. I'm trying to learn enough to know what sled to buy. So gotta look into this one.
Been watching this segment pretty closely.
So far lots of talk and prototypes, but nobody is making it easy to buy one.
I searched some. Looks pretty neat. But like the Zero Motorcycles, they are really neat, but just not there, YET.
2nd Gen Chevy Volt! Best car I've ever owned.
It gets about 42 mpg at 75mph cruising when running the "gas generator" and about 60 miles of EV range and even further because it regens the batteries when braking or decents. You can select "modes" which also help regen the batts.
Maint? I've replaced engine and cabin air filters at 24k. Gas Gen oil I replace once a year. Drive unit fluid at recommended 46k. There's really very little to service. This thing hardly uses brakes - the elec motor slows it down. So, I don't expect ever change those.
I had a shift selector issue that appears an issue with other Chevy models. Replaced that part myself for $50 and I ran over a dog (at 65 mph) which bent a crossmember - replaced that for $25 as well.
I'm at 53k miles.
Been a great daily commuter.
Awesome! I've never understood why the Volt wasn't more popular. A friend of mine works for GM, and drove one as a demo for a while. He was getting something like 100mpg pretty regularly, I guess from just running on electric most of the time?
Got a 1st gen that we bought new. Little over a 100k. Car has been nothing short of remarkable.
Sounds like y’all are saying that GM actually did something right.
Of course that means they killed it after just two model years, right?
Why isn't the Bolt? It's a great car too.
But they're just not that exciting and barely pushed by GM. Same with the Leaf from Nissan or many other similar products. They mostly targeted that eco market both in their features and marketing VS Tesla which went after everyone just as an electric car.
